Expectations of Students

Most of your life at Lipscomb—whether a commuting student, a graduate student or an undergraduate student—will be spent outside the classroom. We believe that offers a huge opportunity to create a learning and caring community that will become an important part of your experience here. At Lipscomb we have high expectations for that experience—we want this to be the place where you become the best version of yourself and where you are equipped to make the maximum positive impact on the world around you. That’s the context for our behavioral expectations. We want to free you up to build a great community, to create academic support and to build a safe environment in which you can grow to become your best.

The student handbook outlines the basics of these expectations. It includes such things as: academic policies, code of conduct, general university policies and procedures, residence life policies, commuter student policies, spiritual formation and missing student policy.
